    Epic Applications Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at The University of Vermont Medical Center (Denver, CO) in April 2020.

    Interview

    First there is an HR screening, then interviews with managers, then group interviews.

    Everyone is very kind and the benefits seem fantastic, but be sure to get clarity regarding salaries early on. There was a lot of confusion between what HR led me to believe in the first interview versus what I was ultimately offered in the last interview. After six weeks and many interviews I was very disappointed/saddened and felt misled by the HR recruiter once the final offer was made to me. There’s also no room for negotiation at all, it felt very “take it or leave it.”

    Also, the higher pay scales listed here for IT aren’t accurate (or UVMHN has reduced their pay scales); senior level analysts/professionals cap out at the bottom of market value, especially for Epic analysts.

    With that said, the organization seems to compensate fairly for professionals with 2-5 years’ experience. If you have more than that, the salaries flatten significantly and it appears you’re locked into a certain pay grade. Advanced degrees hold no value in salary negotiations.

    Finally, the relocation package is very small, with I believe a cash payout (I believe of 1k) followed by receipt submissions up to about 5k.

    If you’re in Vermont already the pay may be adequate. If you’re open to relocation to many places and would like to work with Epic, there are currently numerous positions listed throughout the country (some remote) that offer better compensation and similar benefits.

    Not very good. You can tell they're desperate for nurses. I applied for 4 positions and got calls for each and single one of them. It was pretty easy to get a job.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The University of Vermont Medical Center (Berlin, VT) in August 2018.

    Met for 20-30 minute intervals with 5 different physicians, an NP, and the practice manager. It was a total of 3 hours long. It was a very streamlined process and didn't involve the hospital tours and other unnecessary steps that many other interviews entailed.

    Interview

    Very friendly interviewer. Laid back and relaxed. Didn't realize that I was not an RN and thought I was interviewing for a different position, but very chill. There was only one interviewer and he offered me a tour at the end of my interview.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The University of Vermont Medical Center.

    Interview

    One sided video interview which was the first step. Straight forward generic questions. Nothing related to the particular job but more for the leadership capabilities. The questions were given 2 mins to answer. There was the option to repeat the question and 30 seconds to prepare your answer.

    Medical Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I filled out the application form and received a call from the recruiter within a week. We had a very positive discussion and agreed that my qualifications met and exceeded the requirements for the position. Likewise, we discussed mutually favorable logistics for start date, work hours, training schedule, etc. Overall things seemed to go very well and we left off planning to schedule an in-person interview the following week.

    Two weeks have passed and I have heard nothing. I've reached out multiple times via multiple avenues with zero response.

    If they've filled the position with another applicant, that's fine...I'm happy for both parties. However it is unprofessional to leave other applicants hanging without ANY contact, especially when an applicant has reached out for a simple status update multiple times. This makes me question the professionalism of the HR department and frankly I doubt I'll bother to apply for jobs here in the future.
